Open Console in Bannerlord
The cheat console in Bannerlord can do almost everything, from spawning the best infantry and cavalry troops right in your party to instantly aging children into adults.
To open Bannerlord’s console, all you need to do is press two buttons at the same time: “Alt” + ” ~”.
Once that is done, you will see the command line console show up on your screen, as you can see in the picture above, and you can start using any commands you want.
By using the cheat console, you will just change values in the game’s files for your specific save file, so don’t worry since you can’t destroy the game.
To make sure the commands work, make sure to also enable cheats using the console now that you opened it.
That’s everything you need to know about how to open the cheat (command line) console in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord!
